So 2008 has come and gone. Of course most of you probably heard about the big party that went down at Congress Theater. Justice, the crazy sensation from France, flew into town to headline the show and walk out with who knows how many thousands of dollars. The lineup was pretty solid and the show sold out. I was a bit hesitant to step foot anywhere near this place but figured it would be a good time... crazy-overload and all. Aside from a rough start with seemingly none of the staff knowing anything that was going on, the whiskeys began to flow and things got popping!
Willy Joy played before and after Home Video, who were followed by Hey Champ. DJs Peanut Butter Wolf and So Me took over and played up til midnight. In the other room, Skyler, Darkwave DJs and The Glamour got the party started.
For the most part I was running around like a mad man trying to get photos & video of everything and say hello to the endless amount of familiar faces.
These photos cover the first few hours. In the next update will be Justice and the rest of the party so stay tuned! Oh and there are also a bunch more photos over at iwas-there.com.
